Eric Gaines: Nike Indy Live

Eric Gaines5’9 2020
Lithonia (GA)/Georgia Knockouts

Gaines is a 2020 name for D1’s to track out of Lithonia High in Georgia. The sub-6 point guard displayed outstanding handles and great body control on his drives to the cup. Knows how to finish at the rim despite being one of the smallest players on the court. Wide array of dribble moves and defenders struggled to guard him because of it. Feathery jumper that he unleashed multiple times, mainly on mid-range pull-ups in transition. Potential MM+ D1 prospect.

Day 3 Nike Summer Showdown 2016

Day three at the Nike Summer Showdown had a certain energy in the building and it wasn’t even 10am yet. The brackets were set and the teams, coaches and spectators were piling in. There was clearly chatter in the building early on about a possible Mac Irvin Fire lockup with Meanstreets. Well that question quickly got answered with two age groups going head to head.

First up was the 17u and the Meanstreets crew took the win in the semis thanks to the slithery play of national top 100 point guard Alonzo Verge. Verge used his quicks to get easy 10ft pull-up jumpers and lay ups all game. They faced a tough physical Hoops Avenues team in the championship and it was a physical game but Meanstreets and Mr. Verge took the W. Team Rose put in a strong showing at this event and all summer with a loaded 16u roster featuring the Martin brothers, Brandon Hurt and Demonte Nelson.

The main game of the day, hands down, was the 16u championship featuring the Fire vs Meanstreets. This is what everybody seemed to be waiting for, coaches included. Let me just say this right now Ayo Dosunmu is just on another level in the 2018 class in Illinois. It’s almost not fair the spring and summer he’s had. Ayo, now ranked #20 in the country, led the Mac Irvin Fire to a blowout win that had emotions and egos on display. The fact that the blowout rule was in effect may have made that bad blood worse. The super talented 15u Mac Irvin Fire brought “The Show” Markese Jacobs and Kejuan Clements. And that’s just what they put on all weekend – a show. Markese put on a personal show that included a takeover performance going for 17 straight points in front of University of Kansas assistant Jerence Howard that helped earn him a scholarship offer and a championship. The 14u Mac Irvin Fire squad featuring Nimari Burnett, Shon Robinson and Adam Miller also won the championship. The class of 2019 and 2020 seem to be loaded in Illinois early. Overall the competition at each level made for solid match ups for recruiters to evaluate at the Nike summer showdown.

2021 6’3 SF Jalen Butler
JR High-Old Orchard
AAU-Illinois Future

Jalen Butler

Super talented and tough. Youngest player to play on 15u division and more then held his own. Poured in big number games against elite teams. Rebounds well and has a knack for knowing where the ball is. His upside is already high, just have to wait and see how much he will grow.

2018 6’3 PG Ayo Dosunmu
HS- Morgan Park
AAU- Mac Irvin Fire

Ayo Dosunmu

Had a huge spring and summer that earned him the #19 spot in the country on 2018 list. And showed why this weekend. Kid has great instincts and skill set. Hard to defend or stay in front of him. Plays under so much control. Gets to the rack any time he feels. Is a thief on defense. Many more offers for his services on the way.

2017 6’3 PG Alonzo Verge
AAU- Meanstreets

Alonzo Verge

Slick point guard with high motor and great handle. He can score when he feels like it. Nice IQ and creates his own shot. Can draw defenders and find the open man. Had a great weekend leading the 17u to a championship. Waiting to see what school he will enroll in.

2020 5’9 SG Thailand Eder
HS- Lowery Freshman Center
AAU- Meanstreets select

Thailand Eder

Young fella was super competitive and did a little bit of everything for his young squad. Hit multiple three point shots and broke down the defense. Has long arms and speed. Handles well enough to create and get his shot off.

2019 6’3 SG Gerald Hunley
HS- Orr
AAU- Chicago Select

Gerald Hunley

This kid can flat out fly. Blink and he’s at the rim. Can score off the dribble. Rebounds at a high rate with his slender frame. Had a nice weekend stat wise.

2019 5’11 PG Markese Jacobs
AAU-Mac Irvin Fire

Markese Jacobs

Ranked #4 in Illinois 2019 class. Nickname is “THE SHOW” for a reason the kid is exciting to watch. Strong with the ability to get in the lane and finish. Pull up game is nice. Decent handle. One man fast break ability. Picked up huge offer from university of Kansas this weekend at Nike summer showdown.

2018 6’3 SG Justin Boyd
HS- Whitney Young
AAU- Meanstreets

Justin Boyd

Shot it well this weekend and had good shot selection. Played at a high level and got in passing lanes to cause turnovers. When he is on he’s on. His play this weekend should boost his confidence heading into Vegas.

Hoop Avenues Elite Report

Hoops Avenues Elite

Maybe the hardest playing team in the whole tournament with their physical style of play. Gave top teams fits and got under their skin. Even blew a couple teams out. Overall a solid bunch that made every game tough for their opponent. They end up losing to a talented Meanstreets team and captured second place.

Day 2 Nike Showdown 2016

Ayo Dosunmu ranked #19 nationally

No secret about who had the best spring/summer of any kid in the 2018 class. This young man went from unranked to currently ranked #19 nationally. 6’3 PG Ayo Dosunmu was in the building for Nike summer showdown and on display for programs like Kansas, Illinois etc. Day #2 was the Ayo Dosunmu-Mac Irvin fire as he showed coaches his slick ability to get to the rack unbothered play after play. Also on display was 6’3 SG Justin Boyd-Meanstreets who was on fire from deep. He hit multiple three point shots that had the crowd cheering him on to hit another and that he did. We had a few young guns take the spotlight on day #2 as well. When I say young I do mean young, a 6’3 7th grader Jalen Butler-Illinois Future played up on the 15u division and more than held his own with solid breakout performances of 27pts and 18pts against a super talented Mac Irvin fire 15u squad. Next up to earn some ink was 2020 Thailand Eder-Meanstreets select who turned in some memorable performances. And then there was 2019 6’3 leaper Gerald Hunley-Chicago select who showed us he definitely belongs as he went off for big number games and a baseline jam that was bananas. Tomorrow looks to be can’t miss action


Day 1 Nike Summer Showdown 2016

Opening nights matchup between Mac Irvin fire 17u and ET21 Buckeyes 17u had court #1 packed  like it was an old school pro-am game with all the fans in attendance standing along the out of bounds line. This game started off as Cam Irvin’s coming out party he was lights out But in shocking fashion “Mr. Downstate Highlight” Jason Towers ended a double overtime game by challenging Illinois recruit Damonte Williams at the rim that resulted in the “and one” foul plus the bucket – game over goodnight. Jason has been on a mission since his electric performance down state with his St. Joseph HS team. The Buckeyes 15u had the night cap that seemed like they wanted to follow in their big brothers footsteps. Matched up against the Fire talented 15u squad Markese Jacobs is called “The Show” for a reason but Matas Masys was fearless and went to work. Game went down to the wire and ended on a short buzzer floater. If these two programs lock up later I need a front seat. Meanstreets 6’6 15yr old Malik Hall has Major tools and will be special. With day one at Nike Summer Showdown in the books I’m sure day #2 will be popcorn front seat worthy.

2017 6’2 CG Jason Towers
HS-St. Joseph’s
AAU-Et21 Buckeyes 17u

Jason Towers

This kid is a athlete and on a mission to open coaches eyes. Decent handle and can get to the rack. Plays up on his man on defense. Nice in transition and can finish through contact. Kid is a winner.

2019 6’6 SF Malik Hall
AAU- Meanstreets

Malik Hall at the Nike Summer Showdown

Major tools for this young fella. Does a bit of everything on the floor. Upside is super intriguing. Shoots a decent percentage from three. Inside outside ability. Rebounds well. Will be a match up problem for years to come.

2019 6’0 CG Matas Masys
AAU-ET21 Buckeyes

Matas Masys

Tuff kid with no fear. Decent change of speed. Above avg shooter. Very disciplined. High IQ. A sleeper in 2019 class. Should have a breakout HS season.

Baylor’s Paul McRoberts plays in the 67th Reese’s Bowl

Paul Mc Roberts represented Baylor Youth Foundation exceptionally well in the 67th Reese's Senior Bowl

Who would have known  that Paul McRoberts would give up playing basketball to play another sport he adored which was football.  Paul finished his senior year of high school on the basketball court and on the football field where he received major awards and accolades  from both sports. He has received academic honors both in HS & college.


After numerous basketball and football scholarship offers, he had to make a tuff decision to choose between two sports he loves.  He took the offer with Southeast Missouri University.

McRoberts, the first Southeast player  to ever be invited to the Senior Bowl, he finished with one touch down,  with four catches ( 46 yards), and one punt return ( 27 yards).

Paul is also be considering for the   2016 NFL draft.  Paul exemplifies that hard work, training  and determination equals success. We are SO PROUD of Paul! #baylor4life

2015 Khadaizha Sanders signs to Rutgers University 2015

UseKKBaylor Youth Foundation’s Khadaizha Sanders (KK) signed to the prestige Rutgers University. Khadaizha is truly a role model on the basketball court and also in the classroom. She is a high honor roll  student athlete with a  3.75 GPA and a 20 on the ACT. She is the most underrated PG in the country. She has not received her fair share of credit of holding that #1 spot during her high school career but you better believe she will show you in the college WORLD that she is #1.

She is the most finesse and polish players that I have ever seen and coached (As a Female) in my lifetime. Her skill level is so beyond her years! It is so UNBELIEVABLE!

She has definitely been LOYAL, RESONSIBLE and RESPECTED by her teammates, friends and competitors. KK is a beautiful warm-hearted young woman that has a special gift that will truly bless many in her future. KKBaylorBasketballRutgers

Here are just some of her accomplishments: A First Team Associated Press player every year, 3A All-State, Daily Journal Player of the Year, she also shot 89 percent from the free throw line. As a sophomore, Sander averaged 19.3 points per game along with 107 steals and 87 assists. She scored 39 points in the Class 3A sectional semifinal and she has scored over 2,000 points in high school. She is listed as No. 38 by Prospect Nation, No. 60 among the ESPNW/HoopGurlz class of 2015 rankings and Prospect Nation also ranks Sanders as the eighth best point guard in the class.

Khadaizha had over 75 solid scholarship offers from the major universities from the following conferences: Big Ten, Big East, Horizon League, American Athletic Conference, SWAC, Missouri Valley,  ACC, Patriot League, Atlantic 10, WAC, Summit League, West Coast, Sun Belt, SEC, Ohio Valley, MEAC, Mid American, Ivy League, Conference USA, Mountain West, Ohio Valley , PAC 12  and Atlantic Sun. She narrowed them down to Western Kentucky, Wisconsin University, Michigan State, Houston University and to her final choice Rutgers University .

Baylor Youth Foundation is  so proud to have had a part in this young prodigy success and development for the past six years. We will have many young ladies follow in her footstep but not too many will be able to fill them.


Michal Miller commits to University of Arizona 2015

Baylor Youth Foundation is proud to announce it’s second commitment for the 2015 season. Michal Miller 5’9 , G/F commits to the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ.  .UseMichal

Michal Miller was  highly recruited by the PAC 12, Big East, ACC, Missouri Valley, Big Ten,  Conference USA, Horizon League and the Summit League.  Michal Miller is an unique and very  talented  athlete. She is very versatile. She can play the 1,  2 & 3. She is a high percentage  shooting guard that can shoot the  three (3pt), knock down the the midrange and take you off the dribble.  Michal’s basketball IQ is impeccable.  Her 6’ft wing span  makes it easy for her to pick your pockets.  Great defender. She averaged 17-20 ppg during our  traveling season where we went 50-3 this past 2014 season.

She represented Northwest Indiana (The Region) in the Junior Indiana vs Kentucky All Star Game where she stole the show.

Michal has been apart of the Baylor Basketball programs since the 8th grade where she has definitely established a special place in our hearts. Look for BIG THINGS from this young ladies future!

Elizabeth Toye commits to University of Wisconsin Madison 2015

Baylor Youth Foundation is proud to announce it’s first commitment for the 2015 season. Elizabeth Toye 6’1 , G/F commits to the University of Wisconsin Madison. Elizabeth may  not had been on  the scouting  reports nor was she being recruiting by hundreds of college coaches. She was under recruited and under the radar! She may had started slow in the race but she finished with a BANG! Grabbing a HUGE scholarship offer by the University of Wisconsin. She is now  apart of the Elite in the Big Ten and will be in Badger Country. ElizabethToyeBayloryouth

Elizabeth Toye is a talented athletic  2 & 3. She can shoot the three (3pt), knock down the the midrange and take you off the dribble. Her collegiate body allows her to secure offensive and defensive rebounds and defend guards and bigs. She is unique because of her ball handling ability and quickest/speed.

Another GREAT part about Elizabeth Toye is that she is a student athlete. She maintains a 4.0 GPA and has scored a 25 on the ACT. She wants to pursue a major in engineering.

Liz dominated in the beginning of July period but was handicapped by an ankle injury but had a great fall season. She picked up two scholarships and several Division I interests during the September live period.

We also had so much talent in the building and many young ladies receiving scholarship offers afterwards. Below is some of the highlighted players.

Girls Chicago Elite Exposure Camp

Baylor Basketbal

# 32 Tinon Hunter– Gary West Side High SchoolTinon_opt

At 5’11, Tinon is a strong even handed post players with the ability to finish after using post moves down low with either hand. She has a big body frame and has good feet that allow her to get good offensive and defensive position and is a monster on the boards. Undersized for her position but makes up for it in tenacious play.


#13 Dejah Joshua– Gary West Side High School

You want to talk about intensity on the court? From her game face to her game play, there is nothing soft about Dejah on the basketball court. Standing 5’8, she by far was the quickest and most dominant defender at the camp. Using her quick feel and quick hands to disrupt her opponent, steals come a dime a dozen for her. Oh yea, she’s not to shabby on the offensive end showing a knack for knocking down 15 foot jumpers and attacking the basket at will.


#4 Michal Miller-Michigan City High School

Michal put on a shooting exhibition this weekend at the camp. She was draining 3 pointers from every angle on the court and displaying a mid range game that had the college coaches nodding their heads in approval. Michal is a 5’9 combo guard with a good handle on the ball and can attack the basket at will. She displays quick feet and is a menace on the defensive end. And to top it off, she plays the game with a smile on her face reminding everyone of exactly what this is…..a game.


#10 Khadaizha Sanders– Bishop McNamara High School

By far the most electrifying and exciting player to watch at the camp, “Kay Kay,” understood the moment and made the best of it. Their isn’t much she cant do on the floor. She has a game beyond her years. Listed at a generous 5’7,  her ball handing skills are immaculate and she has court vision that enables her to see things before they happen. She is a vocal leader on the team who has no problem leading by example with her never say die attitude and hard work. She has a great shooting touch and loves to see her teammates score just as much as herself. Defensively, she isn’t a slouch either, displaying good lateral quickness and good hands.

Lady Meanstreets

#11 Marsha Howard– Crete Monee High School

A monster on the court, Marsha is definitely not someone you want to play against but would love to have as a teammate. A 6’1 forward, she rebounds offensively and defensively like a woman possessed and plays good defense on her opponent. She is extremely aggressive and plays with a high motor. The queen of the pick and roll, Marsha can even put it on the floor and handle the ball like a guard.

#40 Tammy Russell– Morgan Park High School

Strong and mean are the best 2 words that describe 5’10 forward Tammy Russell on the court. She plays extremely well with her back to basket and can turn over either shoulder or reverse pivot and face you up. You are at her mercy down low. She rebounds well and understands her roll on the court. She does exactly what she needs to do and is asked to do.

Lady Spartans

#5 Jenasae Bishop– Ecuea  Middle School

Jenasae is a do everything point guard. Only a eight grader, Ms. Bishop has a game beyond her years. She handles the ball well and makes good decisions with the ball. She has quick feet and good lateral movement. What she lacks in height she makes up for in quickness. She can shoot it from the outside as well as mix it up inside with the bigs.

#23 Daijah Smith– Lighthouse College Prep

Daijah can shoot the basketball. She is a coaches kid. She shoots the ball well and has a nice release on her shot. She is 5’9 and thin. However, looking at her lean frame and long limbs, you can tell she is no where near done growing. And that says a lot because she is already a problem for her defenders who have a hard time contesting her shots because they are so worried about her drive to the basket. The sky is the limit for Ms. Smith.

Minnesota Warriors Elite

#25 Katrina Reeves– Hopkins High School

At 6’, Katrina is a great complimentary guard. She has a strong body and can handle the ball like a point guard. With a shot extending well beyond the high school 3 point line, Ms. Reeves can really fill it up. She is a vocal leader for her Warrior team and is never negative on the court.


#45 Sam Trammel– Eden Prairie High School

Sam is a very skilled big. She can face up with her defender or back them down from the block and use her arsenal of post moves to get her shot off. She rebounds offensively and runs the floor well. A junior in class, Sam is merely scratching the surface of her abilities as a basketball player.

Navy Team 

#31 Lauren Dickerson-Lawrence North High School

This 5’2 point guard is better off being labeled as a scoring guard. Lauren has the ability, despite her small stature, to get to the basket and finish. She is lightning quick and can shoot it from the outside at a above average rate. She is very unselfish with the ball, always looking to get her teammates involved in the game. She is only a sophomore but plays the game like she’s much older than that.

#32 Sydney Huffman– Franklin Central High School

Sydney is a highly effective off guard who can handle the ball and loves to attack the basket. She is very passive and unselfish until her fuse is lit. Once that occurs, the only thing that can stop her is the buzzer at the end of each quarter. She can shoot the ball from outside, penetrate off the dribble and find the open man . This 5’6 guard will be a force to be reckoned with once she realizes she is as good as she wants to be.

Team White

Brenda Pennington-Bishop Noll High School

When you combine a consistent 3 point shot, ball handling skills, unselfishness, the “want to” to play defense, and being extremely coachable, you get one heck of a ball player and that explains Brenda to a T. She lead a undermanned Camp team to a couple victories and made her opponents account for her whereabouts on the basketball court at the camp.


Naomi House-Bishop Noll High School

Teammates at the camp and teammates at the camp Naomi and Brenda Pennington just flat out play well together. Naomi is the bigger of the guards standing at 5’8. Ms. House can also shoot the ball with consistency and is very athletic. She has a killer crossover that makes her hard to guard and can finish with both hands in the paint. She has quick feet and can guard a variety of positions.
